Born August 29th, Troy Guy was pretty much already in the music industry. Both parents were musicians and singers in their generation, which evolved into Troy's success. At age 8, he sang in a talent show for the school and won 1st place. At age 11, he started taking drum lessons and voice lessons that made him musically inclined today. He plays piano by hearing the music first and mimicking the music afterward. He ventured into freestyle music in 1988 and wrote and produced the song "Forever Amor." Initially, it was named “Don't Pass Up My Love" and teamed up with Erik Gorder (Here I Go Again). First was introduced to Mark Imperial ('J'dore Dancer), which intern changed the song's title from 'Don't Pass Up My Love to Forever Amor. Then Mickey' Mixin' Oliver (Chicago D.J.) brought about the female vocalist who created the group "In-Effect." Afterward, Troy Guy went solo and signed to DJ International Records/Atlantic Records and found Andrea Salazar. He then created a new group that people know now as "D’ZYRE.”
Troy Guy is now a soloist and still produces and performs everywhere he is asked to. He has written songs like Forever Amor, Games of Love, Inside Your Love, and more. Now, he is currently working on his album consisting of R&B and Hip-Hop. He still produces and sings Freestyle music, but with a different feel to the beat. He feels that old-school freestyle is excellent, but since the audience has changed, he feels freestyle music has to come out stronger and more powerful than before. A new twist to the music or singing will bring it back.
Troy has accomplished many accolades in the past. Forever Amor hit as high as #43 with a bullet in the top 100 billboard charts and #1 for three weeks straight in the Chicago Radio Station B96. #1 in the top dance charts for four weeks in a row.

Troy Guy has performed with many great freestyle legends like George LaMond, Cynthia, Lil Suzy, TKA, Coro, Judy Torres, Miguel Reyes, Legacy, Lisett Melendez, Suave, Rochelle, Nocera, Hanson, Nu Image, Johnny O., and many more. He would like to thank all the DJves that have helped contributed to his success in the music industry like Tim ‘Spinnin’ Schomer, Julian Perez, Harv Roman, and many more to name as far as the DJ’s nowadays, DJ Solito, DJ Lex, Judy Torres, and everyone' keeping freestyle alive through radio/internet.
His major influences in the music industry were Michael Jackson, and they share the same birth date. Johnny Gill, Luther Vandross, Howard Hewitt, Whitney Houston, and Patti LaBelle. As a producer, he idolizes Baby Face Edmonds, Teddy Riley, Quincy Jones, and Pharell.

Lucy Love was born on August 15th in Chicago, Illinois. She grew up listening to Cumbias with her mom. Norteno music was another family favorite. She started listening to freestyle music at the age of 12.
Today she has partnered with Troy Guy, who has written and composed 2 of her songs. What Must I Do, and This Is My Life. She never dreamed of becoming who she is now. With the guidance of many artists and producers, she is well on her way to becoming the star that she and her entire family always thought her out to be.
Her musical aspiration derived from her father, from which he instilled in his daughter, from singing in churches and singing at family events. Many years ago, he was in a group called Brisas De Mexico. So her love for music began there. Her music history is electric, where it holds no boundaries in genres where her vocals can excite the many delights of her fans.
As quoted by Lucy: "Many have fallen and given up on their dreams. Many have tried and not succeeded. But it's the persistence and determination is what prevails the success of your dreams."
MARK MILAN AKA MARK ANTHONY RODRIGUEZ brings high energy to the fans, wherever he goes, since 1991. With legendary Freestyle songs such as “Foolish Pride”& “One More Chance.” He transports the audience back to the ’90s, as well as into the future with his current track, “The Comeback.” The fans love to sing along as well as dance to the “high energy” songs.
MARK knows how to entertain and keep the audience engaged. MARK MILAN started out singing his favorite songs as the radio played them, such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Queen, Boys II Men, the BeeGees, and Commissioned (Gospel music), to name a few. In his teens, MARK MILAN became a DJ, learned to mix, cut, and blend songs to keep the crowds dancing!! Playing music helped MARK to learn the basics of how a song is written and arranged—getting all his influence from the current artists he was spinning made it easy to transition into writing, singing, and performing.
Hitting the stage with the likes of Troy Guy (D’ZYRE), Diddle D, Fabian, Jessee B (LEGACY), Pure Pleasure, George Anthony, Jae Mazor, and a host of other amazing artists has encouraged him to continue on this musical journey to keep the fans on their toes.
